I would like to talk to you today about music therapy and its effects on ADHD.
I have read research that says music helps the brain to help treat ADHD. I have also heard and seen research that said music doesn't help ADHD. The amount of research that I have found on ADHD firing up certain things in the brain that help calm ADHD symptoms has been overwhelming.
For instance, check out the article here for more info on this.
From the research that I've compiled, regular music therapy helps balance the synapses of the brain that are responsible for the ADHD activity. The opaqueness of sound and the textures go in through the ears of the patient and goes to the areas of hyper-activity and is shown to drastically cut the areas of heavy imbalance to a straight and balanced line of activity.

Take for example-- This music here.

Mood Music--This is music that is generally synthesizer or keyboard-based that swells, ebbs and flows in a certain tonality or key. It is specifically designed to make the student or patient feel a certain way.
